A late mate

Pegasus Marshal’s Mate Book Cover Pegasus Marshal’s Mate
US Marshals-shifter series #2
Zoe Chant
Fantasy Romance, Psychic romance
Kindle

Her new beginning is off to a bad start…

Tiffani's first marriage was a disaster. And now her first day of her new life as a court reporter has involved a jackass judge, a bomb threat…and a sexy silver fox of a US Marshal. One who tempts Tiffani to give up her new determination to prove she doesn't need a man. But if she's going to show everyone she's more than just air-headed arm-candy, she can't just fall into those gorgeous, muscled arms…right?

Pegasus shifter Martin thought he'd never find his mate. After losing his wife, he gave up on love entirely. But one look at Tiffani and he knows he needs this smart, funny, gorgeous woman. All he wants is to give her the romance she deserves—and the protection she just might need.

Between the trial of the century, petty dictator bosses, and a senior citizen flash mob, Tiffani and Martin will have to steal time for their second chance at love. But who better than a pegasus shifter to sweep a woman off her feet?

The Pegasus Marshal's Mate is a standalone paranormal romance. If you love shifter romances full of passion, thrills, and humor, one-click today!

A romance for the (slightly) older generation – say 40s and up. And a second chance romance with, dare I say it, unexpected family additions.

A gentle style of writing with some humour that produces a smile.

This is set around a white collar crime court case, witnesses and Marshals doing protection work.

Our furry friends – sometimes with feathers or scales though

Fun idea and I do like the initials – and then there is ASS – Avian S Security

Definitely a fun read this set of stories, with lots of shifter romances of species that really shouldn’t like each other. The Rabbit and the Bear for instance.

Miranda is just so over the top, but her feral rabbit, well don’t encounter them is all I can offer.

This is Eve at her best. But I found that in Books 4/5/6 The premise gets a bit thinner and the stories are less giggly.

And the end of the world?

'A match for end-of-the-world classics like Stephen King's The Stand' - New York Times Review of Books 'Breathtaking' - Heat Thirteen years ago, a catastrophic pandemic known as The Doom killed billions. For those left behind, it is a chance to build a new world. But The Doom was no ordinary virus. In some survivors, it awoke strange powers - to heal, to harm, even to predict the future. Fallon Swift has no memories of the old world - but she is destined to shape this new one. Growing up with her three brothers on a quiet farm, she has been protected from danger by her mother and stepfather. Now she must leave them, and learn to fight. Because Fallon is not only a powerful 'Uncanny' - she also has a pivotal role to play in the bloody battles ahead. A war between good and evil is brewing, and Fallon - young, tough, headstrong - must be ready. A sequel to the number one bestselling Year One, this breathtaking novel of love, war, family and magic is a gripping and deeply satisfying continuation of an extraordinary new trilogy.

I’m always a fan of Nora Roberts like so many readers, especially when she gets her ‘witchy’ hat on, and whilst this isn’t a witch story, it has plenty of fantasy for Nora to spin into a different world time.

I also like Apocalypse books when they have something new to offer but the standard vampire/ghoul/zombie stuff, doesn’t do it for me. Here we have a different ‘Doom’. Yes, it is a virus but there we leave the trope to find our way into a new world with Fallon our heroine.

Nora Roberts has good heroines. They are smart, they are feisty and they get things done. They have a destiny and aren’t afraid to pursue it.

Nora mixes up the heroine’s story with that of a community coming to terms with the new world order. As her first foray into the new world order and apocalypse fantasy writing, the story reads well and has great promise for future instalments.

More and now Dragons

Rhodes Book Cover Rhodes
(Angelbound Offspring #4)
Christina Bauer
Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult
Published by: Monster House Books
Publication date: December 17th 2019

As dragon shifters, Rhodes and Zinnia should never have fallen in love. Why? Zin’s a princess while Rhodes is only the hired help. If the pair remain in the dragon realm, then age-old prejudices might tear them apart. But returning to Earth isn’t any better. In the human world, Rhodes and Zin are a musical sensation … and fame’s an even bigger relationship killer. Bottom line? Rhodes has huge decisions to make, both for himself and Zin. Unfortunately, it isn’t clear what path—if any—will end with Rhodes and his love having a future together. ANGELBOUND OFFSPRING

This is the latest in the spin-off series from AngelBound. These tell the stories of the children and grandchildren of our original hero and heroine and more about the different species that inhabit their worlds.

Here we have 2 dragons – including one who cannot breathe fire. She and her sister are in a tower, guarded from the world, because there have been threats against them. The threats come from followers of the old Emperor who had been defeated in a previous story.

My main issue with this book is that as these stories continue to be written, the age range (apart from one scene in this book) seems to get younger. This means the stories are shorter and more simplistic than the original series. In my mind this is a shame but …

Why was she stolen? The Author explains

Stolen Princess Book Cover Stolen Princess
(Royal Conquest Saga #1)
Nikki Jefford
Genres: Fairy Tales, Fantasy, New Adult, Retelling
Amazon Digital Services LLC
Publication date: November 11th 2018

She sacrificed herself to save her family from poverty… The ball was only the beginning. It wasn’t enough to kill my mate, heir to the throne. My obsessive Fae brother-in-law wants the crown. And he wants me ruling by his side. I thought I was done with romance until a certain pompous elf reappeared in my life at the illustrious Monster Ball. A little teasing led to bruised lips and captured hearts. No one wants Jhaeros and me to be together, not even my favorite sister, Melarue. But she’s a teenager just coming into her elemental powers and discovering boys—the wrong kind—the type I want to shoot arrows through. My royal in-laws are playing a treacherous game, and my brother-in-law is determined to get what he wants. But this elf princess no longer has a master. I don’t want a crown. I want freedom, family, and the love of a lifetime. But love might be the one thing that destroys us all. **This book will now include the prequel novella Enemies and Lovers.

If you could recommend a living author – who would it be? A dead author?

Just one? I am a huge Sarah J. Maas fan. Her storytelling and characters steal me away in every single one of her books. For a deceased author, I’d go with Jane Austen. I love her humor and all the family scandal that goes along with her novels.

In your opinion who is the funniest author now writing?

Currently, Rainbow Rowell is cracking me up with her Simon Snow series. Listening to Wayward Son in bed on audiobook my entire body was shaking with laughter (while my husband was trying to get to sleep).

What have you done with the things you wrote when in school?

All my spiral notebooks and three ringed binders stuffed with stories used to be stored in boxes beneath the stairs of my mom’s house in Alaska. She recently dumped them off at my current address in Washington State. Now they’re shoved in my closets. I’d never take the time to reread them, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to throw them into the recycle bin.

Do you have any pets?

I have a Westie named Cosmo. He will be 14 years old soon and has been my sweet little writing (and reading) buddy all along. With writing being such an isolated endeavor, having his company is a huge comfort. Luckily, he can’t reach my keyboard the way a cat can. He does like to sleep behind the wheels of my chair, so I have to watch out that I don’t back up and roll over him.

Which of your books are you most proud of?

I’m super stoked about my current series: Royal Conquest (Stolen Princess). It’s outlandish, unpredictable, steamy, and laugh-out-loud funny. Watching readers become hyper over how much they enjoyed the characters gives me an overwhelming sense of satisfaction and pride. Fans fuel the flames and keep the series going!

Do you have an unusual hobby?

I enjoy motorcycling. This is my husband’s passion. I never expected to take any part of it until six years ago when we were living on a remote island with a max speed of 40 MPH. I was getting bored with island life and figured that if I was ever going to learn, that was the best place to do it. It really revved up our relationship and gave us something fun to do on (sunny) weekends.

If you could choose to live in another country/town – which would you choose? And why?

I wish I knew! One thing is certain, my husband and I dream of living someplace sunny and warm most of the year. I was born and raised in Alaska for the first thirty years of my life. My husband grew up near Paris, which has Seattle’s similar overcast and rain. Somehow, we ended up in the Pacific Northwest with rain, rain, gray, gray, gray. Not ideal for motorcycling or healthy dose of vitamin D!

About the Author

Nikki Jefford is an award-winning, bestselling author of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and quirky combinations in-between.

She is a third-generation Alaskan now living in the Pacific Northwest with her Westie, Cosmo, and her French husband, who she wouldn’t trade in for anyone–not even Spike or Mr. Darcy!

When she’s not writing, she’s reading, walking, or out riding her motorcycle, a Honda CB500F, (so long as it’s sunny and warm)!
